The cookie monster is back! I already found the BEST chocolate chip cookies, it’s my go to recipe when I’m craving some. This week is different though, I saw this recipe from the tasty kitchen and it said the Softest Chocolate Chip Cookie ever! So you know me, I got to give it a try. What intrigued me the most is that it uses vanilla pudding mix to keep it soft?!? Huh? Interesting… Luck for me I have a box of vanilla pudding mix waiting to be consumed. It turned out promising as I was mixing the dough, it actually smells nice and the dough itself is softer than my usual dough. Moreover, portioning them out was such a breeze that I had such high hopes but I was very much disappointed. I made my portions in a cylindrical shape hoping when they flatten out it would be a nice round cookie shape, but noooo…. When I was baking them, they didn’t flatten out! What the….? It look so weird! I have a batch of cookies that looks like something you wouldn’t eat on a regular day, so disappointing. It tasted good though, not the best chocolate chip there is, however they are indeed quite soft. It’s a good thing actually that I didn’t double the recipe because I find it a bit tedious having the need to flatten them out before baking them.
